current reading material: I’m trying to get into “The Jane Austen Book Club” without much success, so I am probably going to start the newest biography of Dietrich Bonhoeffer and put a hold on “The Help” and “Unbroken” from the library.

current songs o’ delight: the Sovereign Grace version/remake of the classic hymn “O the Deep Deep Love of Jesus”. I just learned it this week when I sang on the worship team and its beautiful. God seems to be driving home to my heart His love for me right now. Which I cannot even begin to deserve or understand.

This isn’t a new song, or even a message I totally agree with, but this performance of Pink’s “Perfect” just BLEW me away when I started watching the show “The Voice” this week. I don’t know how you could choose one or the other of them to be eliminated – they both just rocked and really sang together instead of against each other.

current projects: lots of party planning! I’m hosting a baby shower for my friend Anna in June, Jackson’s 2nd birthday and a bridal shower in July and a girls weekend at our house for a bunch of old friends in August. Shew! It’s going to be a busy summer, but lots of fun. 🙂 I’m trying to keep things reasonable, but I just can’t help going a little crazy with fun details…I love throwing parties for people I love!

current recipes I’ve tried: I made these amazing cupcakes recently, and they were a big hit. The buttercream is intensely rich, so don’t pile it on if you have a low frosting tolerance like me. It’s dang good on graham crackers too. 🙂 But I wouldn’t know ANYTHING about that, no sir-ee. And on my hot list to make as soon as I go grocery shopping and fill my bare cupboards are these: Warm Spinach and Sweet Potato Salad, Coconut Lime Semifreddo, and Strawberry Summer Cake.

current hair color: my natural mousy brown. Somethings gotta give soon – I hate my haircut AND the color. Time to do something drastic – mwuhahaha! Which means I’ll probably get some totally tame highlights and I don’t know what to do about the cut…I really, really want to get it LONGER, but I am so so so sick of layers. Blergh. Any serious suggestions are welcome.

current events:

1. today we remembered the fallen and celebrated our freedom this Memorial Day. We joined Kyle’s family for a lovely cookout at their home and a fun afternoon of chatting, horseshoes and other summer shenanigans while MN finally showed its true summer weather with humidity and warmth. Hooray!

2. Jack and I have lots of park playdates scheduled this week and next. He is becoming such a social little man. EVERYDAY he tells me (around 8am usually) “Wet’s DOE!” with a big ta-da of his hands. (Translation: Let’s go!)

upcoming events:

1. My 29th birthday! I can’t believe its only about 2 weeks away. I sort of have this stupid childish delight over my birthday still…Kyle told me this afternoon that he is taking me to a cute little cafe in Minneapolis and we plan to putz the day away in the city: Farmers Market, Lake Nokomis/Harriet/Calhoun, then maybe cupcakes with friends and family in the evening.

2. A baby shower for my friend Anna and her sweet baby girl, Cassie Faith, who will arrive right about the same time as my little Taylor Charlotte! 🙂 It’s been a wonderful joy to see the Lord answer her prayers for a child after waiting on Him and its very fun to be pregnant together.

my life is full and beautiful because the Lord of all creation has seen fit to take me as His own. I have a wondeful husband, five incredible kids, a sweet yellow lab, and we live in a lovely house in a small town. I throw the occasional temper tantrum, love good food, bake drool-worthy treats, and have a love affair with French-pressed coffee, mountains, and the North Shore of Lake Superior.

  1. I have both Dietrich Bonhoeffer AND The Help on hold for me at the library. It could be awhile before I get the latter book though, seeing that I’m #30 in line. Maybe we’ll get our copies together and be reading buddies. 😉

  2. Ooohhhh, I have that Dietrich Bonhoeffer bio . . . haven’t started it yet. My “to read” list is waaaaay too long. =(

    I’m not really a fan of that duet (maybe because Pink’s songs are extremely hit-or-miss with me?), but WOW– those girls can sing. I definitely preferred Vicci. I tend to be partial to lower-voiced singers. (Haven’t seen The Voice, though, so I guess my vote shouldn’t count). 😉
